Absolute beginner Node-RED flow

The motivation for that blog post is: When I support Hackathons I notice there’s often a lack of programming knowledge and building UIs, but they have awesome ideas.

The dashboard of Node-RED is a awesome way to build a UI, but there was a “out of the box” Node missing to simply add a table. Now I found a very useful Node that’s create a table inside a Node-RED dashboard.

That’s motivated me to create an example GitHub project, which provides an example to build a simple application from scratch.
